I got a great gift for christmas, a new point and click camera. And I've been snapping away at creations. Well don't ya know that I have already misplaced the USB plug so I can't download these projects I wanted to share. Good thing for old faithful. I had a few pictures of a project i did for my father on it. My very first Board Book. And let me tell you, after the first, I was hooked. I love the small journal and brag books and am really looking forward to trying the acrylic books as well.
Here are a few pictures
The Black Paper is Co'rdinates Cardstock. It has a colored core, so embossing and sanding are amazing. The black turned into this great harlequin design after I did both.
I love using little beads to accent a piece. The Glass charm is from the Tim Holtz Fragments collection and they are a riot to work with
Talk about taking a regular Prima flower and making it zing! The Shimmerz paint collection, which comes in a huge variety of shades, was painted on the flower to give them sparkle.
You can see another technique here, that I used with the Co'rdinates Chocolate Box cardstock. I wrinkled it up then sanded the wrinkles. Gives a little bit of a distressed look.
All and All, I am pretty happy with how my very first board book ever turned out. You know what they say about practicing though, so off to do some inking, or folding, or cutting.
